Thursday's pics



It's 16th of Novemeber. Back to doing gazillion onf different projects at the same time! Started to sketc the next doodle book. It will be a bit different, from the two previous ones. Less demanding if you had diffiulties of 'figuring out what to draw'. Paintign pictures for places in Finland, and then there are the cat pics for online shop , and the myth graphic novel to be started...

You can also subscribe to my 'newsletter' by clicking in the 'subscribe to my newsletter' above. It is less of a letter, more like an art show. Every Thursday you will get a drawing or painting straight into your inbox, with some thoughts, and info of my books. Later I'll put up another list about
my shop you can subscribe to.  Your email will be kept private and you won't be spammed!

But if you don't want to subscribe, you can check my Thursdays pics here, Facebook, Twitter and Instargram as well!(Unless i'm away, which doesn't happen that often).

 You can find this cute 'Buy me a coffee' button on my pages. You can donate some pennies to the creator if you feel like it! Always appreciated!

I have finished the German version of the 'Elves & the Agro Adventure',  and now I'm doing the same with 'Elves Get Organized'. My husband is translating it.

 I still haven't decided where to put  'Elves & the Agro Adventure' out as a webcomic, a page per week.
It would be running for 2 years, so you can just go and buy it!



Katja Vartiainen has an art background. She is a painter, an illustrator, and recently a storyteller through her graphic novels. Her visual inspiration comes from fine arts as well as from the wide cornucopia of comics, graphic novels, films, music(=everything). Her literary interests are wide and varied.

With her husband they share a taste for humor, multi-dilettantism, and they get inspired by our tragicomic planet and its curious creatures.

She has dabbled in arts, illustration, teaching, upholstery, painting chairs, walls, pictures, and whatnot.
